Just for the record, Recuva finished at 66 hours:

It's odd that I'm having trouble finding a good tutorial
for Linux recovery of the master table of contents, since 
it must be happening to others day in and day out.

Fundamentally, the procedure is to "dd" the disk and then 
work off the backup but I don't want to make a mistake so 
that's why an exact procedure is so critical to find.

It's expensive being a pioneer; yet I shouldn't have to be
a pioneer for this task, since it happens every day.

Will read everything written and try to find a tutorial.
